, but the last poll confirms that. 65% of americans saying let us tax people making over $250,000 a little bit more than they are now, so that makes all the sense in the world. the people are within, get a load of this, now the c.e.o.'s are with him. the c.e.o. of fedex arguing it should be higher. >> it is capital investment and equipment and software that are the solution to our economic problems. not the marginal tax rights of individuals. that's my view. >> cenk: then you go to the defense industry, we've got one of their c.e.o.'s: >> cenk: don't get too excited the defense contractors are on our side. here's the reality. if we don't do a deal, we take $600 billion in defense cuts. that usually comes from the defense contractors. so they're like what! cuts in defense! no no, no, let's make a deal. we can raise them up a couple of points, that's all right. just don't take $7 billion from me. there's self interest there. there's tremendous moment to make this happen, unless you're looking at republicans. and we have got a treat for you today. we're going to do a little hot tub time machine a
